Alrighty...so it's been 4 years since our daughter was born. We are thinking about starting on number two early to mid 2013. Here are just a few questions that I didn't have the first time around because, well, I never had time to ask them since we weren't really "trying".
1) I want to lose 20 lbs by June (the ideal time for us to conceive). Any suggested tips for effective weight loss tips? I'm starting a weekly program for abs, arms, and back. Nothing too lengthy, but effective. I'm not a runner...never have been. But I have a large dog who I LOVE to take on long walks. Those are my starting points. I usually cook pretty healthy, nor do I drink much pop, but I'm eliminating that too. Coffee...eh, that's gonna take me a while, but I go fat free anyway so...we'll work on it! And when I say 20 lbs, I could settle for 10, but why settle when you can do better?! 20 would put me at an optimal weight for pre pregnancy...10 would be just ok. What worked for some of you?
2) If June is my optimal time to get pregnant when would you all suggest going on prenatals? And when should we ditch the BC? Sorry to be blunt, but we've been using condoms, not BC for me...I was on it originally and didn't like how it affected me. So...when is the optimum time to ditch it? April, May?
Sorry, it's just been quite a while since I was pregnant, so some of these things escape me!
